DAVAO CITY (September 25) — Unidentified motorcycle-riding gunmen killed a lady lawyer in Gabayan 2, Brgy Mankilam, Tagum City, past 8:00 in the morning, Monday, September 24.
Police Regional Office (PRO) XI spokesperson Chief Insp Milgrace Driz, identified the victim as Connie Del Rio Villamor, married and a resident of Purok Pag-asa, Barangay Visayan village in Tagum.
Initial police investigation revealed, Villamor was driving her black Subaru forester and was traversing the vicinity of Gabayan 2 near Manga Elementary School when the assailants onboard two motorbikes attacked her.
The car swerved when she was shot and hit a concrete fence.
Villamor, 39, worked as community relations chief for Apex Mining Corporation based in Compostela Valley Province.
She also owned several businesses in Tagum City and Maco town in Compostela Valley.
The Davao del Norte PNP has created a special investigation task group (SITG) to investigate Monday’s fatal shooting.

She was pronounced dead on arrival at the Davao Regional Medical Center due to multiple gunshot wounds in the body.
The Scene of the Crime Operatives (SOCO) found two fired cartridges from a .45 caliber pistol in the area.
